The playout buffer occupancy of a mobile user watching a video on a cellular wireless network is modeled analytically as Markov fluid queue. The probability of video freeze that is observed upon buffer drain is computed depending on adaptive playout rate, rate adaptation threshold and pre-play buffering. An optimization problem concerning these three parameters is formulated.
